Description & Analysis

This is yet another rare proof issue that is even more rare as a currency coin. For many years this was thought to be a proof-only issue until the first verifiable MS coins surfaced. Gems are seldom seen, but Cameo pieces are available in limited numbers.

A very minor repunched date is known, and this may be just the earliest die state of a single proof obverse die on which the repunching was later polished away.
